Zorin Store | Flatpak error

Hello guys,
Recently I've got a problem with Zorin store (I get message: socket timeout I/O)and all of Flatpak packages, Somehow flatpak main server is censored in my location.
I try to install Kdenlive it takes forever time to install!
Is there anyway to change the flathub server in the Zorin update servers?

Thanks

Do you have libcurl installed?

sudo apt install curl python3-pycurl

Thanks for the reminder, btw. I had forgotten to Remove Flatpak from my system. It and Snapd Are now completely purged. :smiley:

I hate Snapd and Flatpak too :smiley: I try to stay away of these packages, but I needed to install Kdenlive, and lately I noticed there is a Photopea version on Flathub.
BTW, I have this problem with PopOS too, I reinstall my Zorin OS about four times.
I will check it and inform

Isn't Kdenlive in the Zorin Repository?

Yes, there is one, But it installs some extra apps like KDE Connect, that I don't like.
Anyway, I installed the python curl, but the result was the same.
Also, I didn't mention I have problem installing Flatpak packages in terminal too

What if you reinstall flatpak

sudo apt install --reinstall flatpak

I think it may be the plugin of the gnome-software, gnome-software-plugin-flatpak . Is it slow if you install Kdenlive with terminal?

I try again with a fresh OS installation, Zorin store still has its problem with getting flatpak metadata...

And installing Flatpak apps in terminal is disaster, best download speed is 800 KB !
With some : Socket I/O timed out messages.

Workaround:

First, a necessary dependency:

http://ppa.launchpad.net/kubuntu-ppa/backports/ubuntu/pool/main/k/kdenlive/kdenlive-data_20.04.0-0ubuntu1~ubuntu20.04~ppa1_all.deb

Then, kdenlive:
http://ppa.launchpad.net/kubuntu-ppa/backports/ubuntu/pool/main/k/kdenlive/kdenlive_20.04.0-0ubuntu1~ubuntu20.04~ppa1_amd64.deb

I do not know what is breaking Flatpak.

I guess the Flatpak repo somehow is banned in my location (Iran), I am positive about it.
Now I am trying to add another repo, maybe it would work.
Anyway, thank you guys.

By the way @Aravisian, Is this version of Kdenlive you mention standalone, or with other KDE stuffs?

It installs and is not standalone. However, it should contain only kdenlive.

This is why I split it between two packages, instead of posting just one link to "kdenlive-all."
